Not a solo instance!

Postby lunawisp » Sun Aug 08, 2021 7:37 pm

This one evidently wasn't designed as a solo instance. After clearing half a dozen presents I was swamped by about a dozen 'on level' NPC's that spawned on top of and proceed to annihilate my character - good for a laugh but puts a pretty quick end to the mission.

Oh, there's an issue with the trees as well, a snowman got stuck in a tree and couldn't be targeted - although it was clearly there, the game said it wasn't a target.

Failed again. Surrounded by yellow con mobs which one shot me. Couldn't even fly away to regain health because I got shot out of the sky. The mobs just hit too hard. Even mobs that con grey which should be a pushover can easily kill me with fewer hits than it takes me to kill them.

I have no idea where you were but I couldn't find a location on a hill or otherwise where I didn't get instantly surrounded or just one shotted from a distance. I'm not trying to solo that one again (!)

OK, so does difficulty need to come down in the Snow Lair?

By the way, what level was your character?

We are always looking for feedback.

Indigowulf -- Congratulations!

And in case anyone had any doubts, Indigo is an amazing team healer. I was on a team with her last night. She kept me alive, and that is hard to do.

I was on a lvl 20 devastator. Couldn't cope with the 'gang' of snow creatures. If the AoE's were more effective it would help with fights like this but with no ability to heal, at present I can't survive there solo.

I will say, I died 3 times in my attempt. I discovered a couple things I used to my advantage
-the mobs will follow you like an ambush
-the friendlies at the entry door will help fight
-you can use the building with many ridges as a safe place to fight from. When you get hit with the knockdown power, you just land safely on the ledge, this allows you to stay out of melee attacks and only have to soak the ranged attacks.

there's 0 chance I would have managed, even with those tricks, if I could not self heal.

Also, thanks for the letter of recommendation Consultant, I'll put it in my game resume :D

I tried it last night on my lvl 8 ice controller. I was able to do about 4-5 presents, before one of them spawned at least 4 snowmen on me.

I can hold one, maybe two, but as a controller I have very low DPS. And my own snowman pet couldn't pull aggro off of me.

Need to level up some more before trying it again I think.
